NY National Guard commander spends Memorial Day with troops in Afghanistan

LATHAM – The commander of the New York National Guard will spend Memorial Day in Afghanistan with New York Army National Guard Soldiers, who are deployed in support of Operation Enduring Freedom.

Major General Joseph Taluto, the Adjutant General of New York, said that spending Memorial Day in a combat zone makes the holiday an especially moving experience.

“I’m reminded of the sacrifice our Soldiers make on a daily basis when I’m with them,” Taluto said. “Since 9/11, 23 members of the New York Army National Guard have made the ultimate sacrifice. I’m reminded of that every day when I walk past their pictures in the lobby of our New York National Guard headquarters.”
